Media release

Avalon, NSW (16 March 2018) Experienced local real estate professionals, Nina Sokolov, Slava Sokolov and Lara Rowell, are combining to return Raine & Horne to the prestige real estate markets of Palm Beach and Avalon.

The three directors joined forces two years ago with a combined wealth of experience and long history in the industry, individually specialising in residential and commercial sales, leasing, development, special projects and business sales.  

Ms Sokolov will lead the residential division at Raine & Horne Avalon Palm Beach, Mr Sokolov will head up property development and special projects and Ms Rowell, a former Raine & Horne employee, will continue to drive additional property services in the Avalon locale.

Raine & Horne is back!

“Raine & Horne was involved in sub-divisional sales in Palm Beach as far back as the late nineteenth century, and we have had an office servicing this region for the best part of 40 years,” said Angus Raine, Executive Chairman, Raine & Horne.

“I’m delighted that Nina, Lara, and Slava have decided to launch Raine & Horne Avalon Palm Beach to service one of Sydney’s most popular prestige real estate markets.”

Family ties to Raine & Horne

“It’s a great family story with Lara’s father Denis McDonagh starting the first Raine & Horne office in Avalon more than 40 years ago,” Angus added.

The Raine & Horne Superbrand is synonymous with real estate and has dominated the property market on the Northern Beaches for many years, noted Ms Rowell.

“We have huge plans for the brand here and provide customers the opportunity to link with one of Australia’s most powerful real estate brands that has such a deep history in this region,” Ms Rowell said.

Raine & Horne Avalon Beach will operate from the iconic and extremely visible former Westpac Building at 49 Old Barrenjoey Road, Avalon Beach. A Palm Beach office will open shortly.
